Samsung Electronics has announced that Galaxy devices will now receive regular security updates for a minimum of four years after the initial phone release.
By extending support for security updates delivered monthly or quarterly, Samsung protects user’s data.
Samsung prides itself in offering unmatched security to its users with Samsung Knox. Its defense-grade security platform and cutting-edge technologies such as the industry’s most robust security chip, the embedded Secure Element (eSE); a Secure Processor to protect against physical attacks; and the recently introduced Knox Vault, which adds another layer of security. By embedding security across every layer of its devices, Samsung can protect personal information in real-time and pre-emptively respond to increasingly advanced mobile threats from the chip up to the apps.
Over the past decade, Samsung has made significant progress in streamlining and speeding up its regular security updates.
Samsung remains committed to offering security updates as quickly as possible, always to stay one step ahead and keep its users safe.
Samsung believes openness and collaboration are critical to offering the best mobile experiences that people can trust. Samsung has worked closely with over 1,000 partners to establish security standards for all android devices, including the first-of-its-kind regular security update program in 2015.
